VariousBrunswick & Dakar 12" Singles Collection Vol 2 – The Big Throwdown ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $21.99
Wonderful work from the later years of Brunswick Records – a time when the company briefly re-emerged as a surprising force on the hipper dancefloors of the time – thanks to a great run of funky club, soulful disco, and seminal boogie tracks! Brunswick didn't issue many albums at the time – and they were quite far from their hit years of the early 70s – but their 12" output from the period is wonderful, and way more than just the usual throwaway work for the discos – done with a real sense of quality, and a devotion to both funk and soul undercurrents that really keep things strong. Volume 2 has tracks that are even more obscure than volume 1 – with titles that include vocal and instrumental versions of "Stay Away From Me" by Satin Dream, vocal and instrumental versions of "The Big Throwdown" by South Bronx, "Never Take Your Love" and "Can't Let Go" by Parris, "I'm So Glad I Got You" and "Another Time Another Place" by Persuaders, and the tracks "Got To Be Free", "Strut Your Stuff", "Waiting For Your Love", and "I Like What You're Doing To Me" by Young & Company.

VariousDance Mania – Ghetto Madness ... CD
Strut (UK), Mid 90s. New Copy ... $9.99
Strut Records takes another dip into the rich legacy of Dance Mania Records – one of the longer-lasting imprints on the Chicago house scene – and a label that continued to make lots of great music after others had given up! The focus here is on the later years of Dance Mania – a time when national and critical attention had shifted away from Windy City house, which only seemed to open things up even more – as the artists got even more experimental with their styles, and turned out some really amazing work! There's almost nothing here that seems aimed at the mainstream or the charts at all – and, if anything, the tracks seem to return to the darkest, spookiest styles of the early acid years – with a similar sort of sonic intensity. Titles include "The Groove" by Houz'mon, "Ghetto Booty" by Parris Mitchell, "Computer Sex" by DJ Funk, "Hit It" by Darien, "Computer Madness" by Steve Poindexter, "1112" by DJ Deeon, "Pump That Shit Up" by Jammin Gerald, "Bounce That Body" by Wax Master Maurice, "Give Me Ecstasy" by Paul Johnnson, and "Pump On The Floor" by Jammin Gerald.

✨✧ VariousHardcore Traxx – Dance Mania Records 1986 to 1997 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 80s/1990s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive overview of one of the longest-running house labels from Chicago – the crucial Dance Mania imprint, second only to Trax and DJ International for its huge run of talent! Dance Mania came into being a few years into the first wave of Chicago house, but also kept its dedication to the underground for a lot longer, too – and really helped a tremendous amount of young artists to hit the studio and get their chance at turning out a groove! The label was housed in the upstairs of Barney's Records – an important west side record store and one-stop – and it dedicated itself to tracks that were maybe a bit faster, simpler, and more direct than some of the other house in Chicago at the time – often with a great style of stripping things down to all their best elements, yet still keeping things warm and soulful overall. The package features great notes on the label – and on the great Ray Barney himself (we miss your store, Ray!) – and titles include "7 Ways (club)" by Hercules, "Crazy Wild" by Club Style, "Love Will Find A Way (club)" by Victor Romeo, "Toxic Waste (club)" by Tim Harper, "I'm So Deep" by Vincent Floyd, "Falling (Armando's house mix)" by 326, "Da Bomb" by DJ Deeon, "Ghetto Shout Out" by Parris Mitchell, "Hit It From The Back" by Traxmen & Eric Martin, "The Original Video Clash – Video Class 2 (street mix)" by DJ Funk, "Feel My MF Bass" by Paul Johnson, and "Work Out" by Top Cat. 2CD set features 24 tracks in all!

AzymuthLight As A Feather (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil – a pushing forward of the soulful sides of their style, but with just the right blend of quirkier elements as well – one that still keeps the edge of the early years, yet helps the group reach out with a wonderfully warm sound! Most tracks are quite spare, and without any too-smooth polishing in production – and titles include the classic "Jazz Carnival", a funky fusion classic if there ever was one – plus "Light As A Feather", "Avenida Das Manguerias", "This Exists", "Partido Alto", "Dona Olimpia", "Amazonia", and "Young Embrace". CD also features four bonus tracks – "Jazz Carnival (full original mix)", "Avenida Das Manguerias (SS translation by Theo Parrish)", "Jazz Carnival (Yambee rework by Ashley Beedle & Yam Who)", and "Codsall Juniors" by Mark E. CD
(Remixed and remastered version – with better sound than ever!)

Original pressing of "Boogie Down Bronx", one of the first hip hop tracks about The Bronx, and the early electro classic that Newcleus copied the bassline, drums and vocoder sound from on "Jam On It". The production almost sounds as if this could be a mid 80s Arthur Baker cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Theo ParrishAmerican Intelligence (3LP set) ... LP
Sound Signature, 2014. New Copy 3LP ... $48.99 54.98
The first proper album from Detroit club genius Theo Parrish in years – a set that has Theo working way at the top of his game – doing conscious club music, but imbued with a compelling mood and artful quality, all while never undercutting the floor-shaking rhythmic sensibility of the music! There's a relatively spare quality to much of the set that makes it all the more interesting – not a single misplaced beat, note, or bit of vocal to be found – and even the longest jams are perfectly lean, but really have a way of keeping things changing up in this really great way. As longtime fans of Theo Parrish, we find it pretty damn rewarding that he continues his creative reign a good couple of decades into his career. 3LP vinyl version features 9 classic level numbers, with no more than 2 jams on per side: "Footwork", "Cypher Delight", "Ah" feat Marcellus Pittman, Ideeyah & Duminie Deporres, "Make No War", "Creepcake", "Drive", "Fallen Funk", "Be In Yo Self" feat Ideeyah & Duminie Deporres and "Helmut Lampshade". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousFor Northern Soul Collectors Vol 1 ... CD
EMI (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2CDs ... $10.99
A sprawling, double-sized set of Northern Soul singles – compiled by Richard Searling and with a focus on the pivotal mid 60s period – from the vaults of labels/imprints both big and small! It's got great singles issued at the time on Roulette, Capitol, United Artists, Sue, Veep, Minit, Liberty and more – mostly from '65-'68 – with some fairly famous names and comparably forgotten ones. Most of these tunes became rarities quite soon after they appeared – and it's s a massive set, too – with 50 tracks on 2CDs! Includes "Better Use Your Head" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "Dance Dance Dance" by The Casualeers, "I'll Do Anything" by Doris Troy, "He Always Comes Back To Me" by Clydie King, "Movin' Away" by Kenny Lynch, "The Drifter" by Ray Pollard, "Breakout" by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels, "My Dear Heart" by Shawn Robinson, River Of Tears" by by Barbara Banks, "She Blew A Good Thing" by The Poets, "I'm On My Way" by Dean Parrish and more.

VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature – Black Jazz Records 1971 to 1975 ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his mix here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. Cuts include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. CD

✨✧ EPMDBusiness As Usual (original pressing) ... CD
Def Jam, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
While this is probably the weakest of the 4 albums EPMD cut before busting up, that shouldn't lead you to believe it's weak. This third LP finds Erick and Parrish still repping Long Island with their signature boom bap beats and slow flow rhyme style. Maybe you didn't get open open on this one right out of the box, but looking back cuts like "Rap Is Outta Control", "Give The People", "Gold Digger" and "Manslaughter" stand up as classic EPMD. 14 tracks in all, with a lot less filler than just about any album that's been released recently, this set also includes "Rampage", "Underground", "Hardcore", "Mr Bozack", "Funky Piano", "Brothers On My Jock", "For My People" and more.

✨✧ Soul Center (Thomas Brinkmann)Soul Center ... CD
WvB Enterprises, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful sample based house and downtempo tracks from Thomas Brinkmann, the perfect soulful antidote to his cool electronic minimalist techno. These cuts are also quite minimal, but with an entirely different feel, one that wouldn't be out of place in a set filled with some of the moodier Moodymann tracks or parochial Theo Parrish numbers. Each cut is more or less based around one nicely chopped loop, with just the right dose of sputtering percussion tracks to elevate the more uptempo numbers into leftfield club territory and the more laidback cuts into a heavy lounge vibe. 8 tracks in all, including "Right/Sh!t", "That's Wild", "Let's Go", "Sweet", "Ain't No", "Party Time", "Walk With Me", and "P Shack Session".

✨✧ Marcos Valle1985 (Theo Parrish SS translation)/Prefixo (Daz I Kue bloodfire rmx) ... 12-inch
Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Theo Parrish takes on Marcos Valle – and the results are even more wonderful than we might expect! Valle's "1985" is really expanded by Theo – and pushed into territory that makes the extended cut feel more like Parrish's own cosmic territory than Marcos' usual mode – although there's this sweet Fender Rhodes line and spacious way of handling the cut that's definitely respectful of the original! "Prefixo" gets more of an upbeat approach from Daz I Kue – with a pulsating bassline that sets the groove strongly underneath the fluttering woodwind melody of the original! 12-inch, Vinyl record
